Statutory Committees – Hearings, Pupil Discipline, Appeals.

These meet only when required, and will consist of three Governors who will be selected from the Governor Body as appropriate. Depending on the nature of the issue it may be necessary for Governors from partner schools to sit on these committees.

Working Committees. (NB these have regular meetings and feedback into WGB meetings.)

We have five working committees, these are: Premises / Health and Safety, Personnel/Finance, Head Teacher Performance Review, Ethos and Teaching, Learning and Achievement. 

The Finance / Personnel Committee is responsible for looking at all aspects of Finance within the School as well as issues regarding staff. Therefore they oversee how the money the School receives from Suffolk County Council is spent during the year which ranges from buying exercise books, paying staff, having the grass cut to buying new laptop computers and everything in between. They are also responsible for monitoring staff performance, terms, conditions and pay. The focus of the committee alters depending on the time of the financial year but the underlying aim is to always ensure that the School gets the best value for money to allow us to give the children the best opportunities.

 

The Ethos Committee is responsible for looking at how the School interprets its role as a Church School. This includes reviewing the School’s mission statement, how Christian values are integrated in school life and to ensure that children experience positive codes of behaviour and attitudes.

 

The Teaching, Learning and Assessment  Committee (TLA)

The TLA Committee overseas the work of the school in relation to attainment, achievement, targeting and monitoring, the use of pupil premium funding, Special educational Needs, including the gifted and talented, and all relevant policies. It aims to ensure that the whole School Curriculum, including Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) is broad and balanced, relevant to the needs of all children and provides continuity and progression.

 

The Head Teacher Performance Review Committee works with an external advisor to decide the performance targets for the Head Teacher for the year, to monitor progress throughout the year and, at the end of the year, review how well these targets have been achieved. The minutes from these meetings are confidential and not open for public view.

 

The Premises / Health and Safety Committee are responsible for looking at all aspects of Health and Safety at the School and also the upkeep of our building and grounds.

 

Who does what on the Governing Body?

Each Governor has a range of responsibilities depending on which committee they are on and what additional responsibilities they may have. These may change from time to time, depending on the needs of the school and the individual. Our Chair of Governors attends all committees in order to ensure that she has a clear view of what is decided in each area.

**Head and Chair of Governors can attend any committee meeting by their request or invitation with exception of Head Teacher Performance Review and contribute to quorate numbers if they are in attendance.
